Top 10 List – The top ten cities CIO pay have been identified in Janco’s 2015 Mid-Year IT Salary Survey.  In the top four cities, CIOs are paid over $200,000 a year.  That is the good news, but the bad news is that the cost of living including housing is very high in all of those markets.

All of these cities have a few things in common.  First there are several market drivers including:

  • Large base population in the immediate metro area
  • An excellent university system close by that provides resources to the IT market
  • Healthy business economy
  • Large population of IT professionals that organizations can draw from

For IT professionals each of these markets is a place to be.  This is where new technologies are  going to be implemented.
